Beaconsfield SYCOBAshford are back in league action on Saturday with their second trip of the season to Holloways Park, this time to meet the landlords Beaconsfield SYCOB.

Beaconsfield are another club enjoying a good season, currently sitting in 7th position in the table and they are yet another club to have welcomed a new manager shortly before we meet them.  The new incumbent, replacing Byron Walton, is James Pritchard, who has arrived from Flackwell Heath.

After an excellent October which saw them winning six consecutive league matches, SYCOB have now lost two of their last three, albeit that all of them were against teams in the higher reaches of the League.  Most recently they won by the only goal at Guildford City but lost 0-2 at home to Northwood and 2-3 away to Royston Town.  We have a reasonable record against our opponents in the past, including a win and a draw last season, winning by the only goal at Beaconsfield, courtesy of Mark Bitmead, and drawing at home one apiece, ours coming from Dan Brown.

The match kicks off at 3.00 p.m and the full address of the ground is Holloways Park, Windsor Road, Beaconsfield, HP9 2SE

The Suburban side are also in action on Saturday, away to Leighton Town, and after a couple of defeats will be keen to get back to winning form.  Again though, it won’t be easy with Leighton right at the top of the table, albeit that they have played more games than most.  Ashford can take heart though that they did manage to inflict a 5-2 home win over their opponents back in August.

The Ladies are also due to get back into action with an away match against Islington Borough at the Douglas Eyre Sports Ground, which is situated at 148 Coppermill Lane, Walthamstow E17 7HE.  Kick-off according to the Mitoo site is 1.30 p.m.

Don’t forget that all matches are subject to the weather so keep an eye on the web site or phone the club (01784 245908) for the latest information.
